Planning for children with special needs

Follow Us

When a couple has a child with special needs, they must plan their estate carefully to benefit that child after their death.  They must consider the issues involved in developing an estate plan when the future of their child must be taken into account.

Estate planning should be done regardless of the size of your estate.  The nature of your child’s disability will affect how you develop your estate plan.  If you have a son or daughter that is not receiving government benefits, you may be able to leave your child money outright.  There are exceptions to this approach.

If your child’s disability affects his or her mental capability, you need to create a straightforward estate plan.

If you have a child with special needs, contact an experienced Riverside Family Law attorney who can discuss all of your legal options with you and help you decide what is best for your child and your situation.
